“Eat Little and Live Long” a meal with Makeda Thomas @ On the Chihuly Bridge
From the artist: “When a house fire destroyed my 100+ year old Brooklyn home earlier this year – and with it, not only the entire “analog” archive of my twenty year career in dance, but all of the research and documentation for my newest work – I grieved the loss of intellectual and cultural memory, and its impact on future work. More than before, I value embodied knowledges – not as ephemeral – but as the only true materiality.” “`Eat Little and Live Long’ is a new archive; a gathering that merges food, dance, and storytelling; an opportunity with artists and...

Performance: The Light Fantastical by Makeda Thomas
Exhilarating modern dance performance that explores Caribbean culture The Museum is thrilled to host world-renowned Trinidadian dancer and choreographer, Makeda Thomas, on August 16. During this 40-minute performance in Fusco Grand Hall, Thomas and two dancers from her company will perform a captivating modern dance titled The Light Fantastical, a contemporary exploration of Caribbean culture through dance. This improvisational piece is imbued with metaphor for art and technology that comes out of Afrofuturist culture—or more appropriately, “Caribbean Futurisms.” It considers how Caribbean cultural forms navigate time and space, and innovate new histories, sciences, and aesthetics.
